Children are not permitted to live with members at the campus. AmeriCorps NCCC members with children must make arrangements for someone to care for their child/children while they are in the program. Members that have custody of their children are eligible for up to $400 per month to help pay for child care while they serve with the program.
NCCC accepts married couples. Married members can serve on the same campus but will not serve on the same team. If the campus facility permits, they will room together on campus but are unable to room together while on spikes.
Members are covered by the AmeriCorps NCCC Health Benefits Program managed by Seven Corners. The health benefits plan covers routine as well as emergency care during service and some pharmacy needs. The plan does not cover medical care for pre-existing medical illnesses and/or injuries. For more information, please visit their website at http://americorps.sevencorners.com/.
NCCC supports faith-based and other community-based organizations; national nonprofits; schools; local municipalities; state governments; federal agencies; national and state parks; and Indian tribes.
AmeriCorps NCCC members perform team-based service projects in five different areas-- natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development-in communities in all 50 states and U.S. territories.
The AmeriCorps NCCC mission is: To strengthen communities and develop leaders through team-based national and community service.
